Happy St. Paddy´s ... What are your plans for the 17th: bouncing the pubs for a pub crawl and /or dining at home ? what is on the stove ?
 
Since it is a Saturday this year, we shall have an Irish style lunch, cornbeef ... and I am thinking about a mini tiny green dessert ...  however, we do plan to hit the Irish pub, me in an emerald silk shirt, and the Vet in a dark  emerald green crewnk sweater on the next corner for a round with an Irish friend and her Spanish husband. 
 
Look forward to hearing some of your specialties and fun planned.
 
Kindest. Have a nice Sunday.
Margi.

We will be having some friends over for corned beef slow cooked in Boston Lager, braised cabbage, onions and carrots on the side.

Of course there will be Guinness all around, and desert will probably be a zeppole in honor of St Joseph's day which is right after St Paddy's day.

I hope everybody gets into the spirit of the day and enjoys themselves.
Go ahead...play with your food!

I'm a bit concerned about it falling on a Saturday. Means there will be a slew of amateur drunks running around, pretending to be professional Irishmen.
 
Glad I don't have to go downtown for anything!

margi and dave, your plans sound wonderful! i wish i was there to join in, but i will have to take my chances here in montana which, thanks to the rich irish heritage in the town of butte, has quite a good time every march 17th. anyone interested in reading a little about the irish heritage in montana can read here:
 
 
as for my own plans, i'd like to make the irish stew that i posted here:
 
 
using the variations that i mentioned. if i do, i'll post a tutorial. we did a great rendtition of corned beef and cabbage two years ago - recipe and pictures here:
 
 
and last year, i made what i considered to be the best irish soda bread ever - recipe and pictures here:
 
 
if i am able to make the stew, as planned, i will also make the soda bread for sopping up all that wonderful stuff!
 
brook - i hear what you're saying about all the amateurs. they do cause a little bit of trouble, don't they? i was one of them once, but some digging into our family history revealed a good little percentage of irish blood, so i'm an amateur no more...lol ~

Ron,
 
Thanks for posting the websites about St. Paddy´s.
 
@ Hoser:  sounds great ... St. Joseph´s the 19th in Spain, is a legal bank holiday plus LAS FALLAS, THE FIRES, in Valencia ... a huge week long celebration of craftsmen who have made these stunner statues, both humorous, global in message, political, and social --- and then they burn them on ST. JOSEPH´s which is also FATHER´s DAY in Spain ... Lots of firecrackers and fireworks and Noise and the town street paellas !!! There is a paella competition ... the best part !
 
There is a Museum in Valencia, called the EL MUSEO DE LAS FALLAS where the children´s statues are chosen and saved year to year for all to see.
 
Happy,
Margi.

Historic Foodie,
 
Have a green frosted cake and a few beers ... The Irish Pub near my loft is 200 metres ... no cars ... no drunks in vehicles ... that is a serious crime here in Spain, the slammer for sure, and the fines ... and the video cameras here !

well, as it turned out, i didn't make the irish stew yet. i was going to simply make it with beef, but finally decided to hold out for some lamb, in order to really get the experience.
 
instead, we made my time-tested guinness corned beef and cabbage, using this recipe and method:
 
 
something different that i did was to add red potatoes and carrots to the slow-cooker for the duration of the cooking. about an hour or so before we expected to eat, i also added cabbage, which i had quartered and then chopped.
 
results were outstanding! this recipe is defintiely "tried and true," and will be a winner for anyone wanting a delicious st. patrick's day meal....or a great meal anytime, for that matter.
 
i also made soda bread, but for some reason it didn't turn out quite as well as it did here:
 
 
it tasted good, but it was a little flat and dense. i was a little careless in my measuring, and i also probably kneaded it a little too long, because i was having trouble bringign it together. these factors probably contributed.
